The adoption fee includes:
- Microchip – Permanent ID
- First Vaccination – Cats: FVRCP; Dogs: DHLPP (You must finish boosters and Rabies vaccination at your veterinarian.)
- Spay/Neuter – at select vet hospitals
- Pet License – (Available only for animals living within city limits.)
- Cats only: FeLV/FIV test
If the shelter’s staff determine that you have chosen a puppy or kitten that is too young to be spayed or neutered, there is an additional $75 deposit that is refundable when you present proof of spay or neuter to the shelter.
So that we have plenty of time to walk you through your adoption and answer all your questions, we will not start a new adoption within 30 minutes of closing time. Please check our hours of operation and stop by before that to complete your full adoption.
It’s admirable to want to give a pet a Forever Family for the holidays; however, giving pets as surprise gifts often leads to abandoned pets. A pet is a big commitment, so it is important for the future pet owner to be part of the decision and select his or her own companion.
If you want to give a gift to a friend or someone outside your household, consider donating to the shelter in his or her name. If you have a family member who has always wanted a pet, try giving pet-related items as his or her “open” gift and then coming to the shelter together to select the newest member of your Forever Family.
